Judges’ Methodology for evaluation of the performances

The judges evaluate the competing groups in three categories: Costume, Music and Dance.

The referees give negative points for the faults they see in the groups. The error scores are summed up and removed from the 100 points, the remaining points are the group final score points.

The scores from all the referees reach the table referee. The table referee excludes the highest and lowest points. Divides the remaining points into bounces and referees. The result is announced as the score of the group.

While the score of the group is calculated;

  • If the trainer of the competing group is sitting on the referee’s table, the trainer is left out of the evaluation even if he / she scored for his / her group.
  • The judge’s score, which gives the lowest score, is excluded from the evaluation.
  • The judge’s score, which gives the highest score, is excluded from the evaluation.
